So far I've had 3 diet sodas...argh, so much for cutting it back. Oh well, by now I've usually had 5 (1 per day) so I guess it's an improvement.

well I don't know how much sense this will make if you don't follow Canadian politics....but essentially the biggest douche bag EVER was elected Prime Minister...with a majority government, which means we are stuck with him for 5 years! Good-bye health care and justice system, hello major deficit.

 

Seriously, look at this guy, I just want to punch him.

I don't know anything about him - just checked wiki...looks like he won by a landslide, wow 75%?!

I don't believe our beloved Ronald Reagan even received that much in his hallmark landslide victory.

 

Anyway, looks like the majority of the population backs Harper...sorry you feel different...

 

Anyway, hope you are feeling better soon & can hit the gym with a renewed vigor! I had to take a couple of weeks off recently as well...it can be the pits - especially when you are making good progress.

Finally went back to the gym today. Thought I was feeling okay but once I started working out I noticed how tired/lethargic I felt. Oh well.

Still coughing lots and my lungs don't feel right. I'm sure that will sort itself out.

Well hold that thought until you hear about my crappy workout today!

 

05/10/11:

 

AM:

5 x 0.5 miles - 90 second recovery between

 

Wow this SUCKED. Was okay for the first two, but then I started to feel pretty lethargic. The last two sprints were my regular running pace, not really sprints, and even those were difficult to finish. After the workout I felt pretty crummy for a couple of hours.

 

Super lame. I thought I was more recovered than that. Oh well, I'll keep on trucking.

 

Lunch:

salad with mixed greens, chickpeas, hummus, carrot dressing

2 apples

 

Snack:

carrots and hummus

 

Dinner:

masala tofu

roasted cauliflower

steamed chart

watermelon
